Frequently Asked Questions About Outdoor Clocks
Most outdoor wall clocks are weather resistant, meaning they can handle moderate exposure to the elements but should be kept out of the direct impact of elements, including sun, snow, wind, and rain.
Indoor clocks are not considered weather resistant at all, so the exposure to the outdoor heat, humidity and even the small amount of rain that could blow onto the clock will cause potential damage and malfunction.
Not necessarily, as long as the mechanism itself is well sealed, and the face of the clock can withstand the elements.
Most use a battery (typically an AA battery) to run the clock mechanism. Power is not normally required for the thermometer, hydrometer, or barometer (if included). Some outdoor wall clocks, particularly lighted clocks, may require an additional power source.
That depends on where you are placing it. Most outdoor wall clocks have a “notch” in the back that lets you hang it off a nail. This is usually good enough for most installations; however, you may want to fasten it more securely if it will be exposed to high winds.
Many do… in fact, I would be willing to go out on a limb and say that most do, but certainly not all of them.
